Falmouth, MA 02541
Highfield Hall & Gardens is the magnificently restored 1878 estate of the Beebe family, now transformed into a vibrant center of cultural and community life on Cape Cod. The story of this property is a dramatic one as it was, literally, saved from the wrecking ball in 1994 and lovingly restored, opening as a museum and historic site in late 2006.
From 2011 to 2013, the property’s two magnificent gardens also underwent restoration. Explore this website to learn about our many programs, concerts and art exhibitions, the history of the property, or how to host a wedding, private celebration, or corporate event at this spectacular Falmouth location.
